: Chris asks:
: : Hi all,
: : I've been trying to remember... have we ever seen him as a truly evil person? It sounds like his character in this new movie is pretty darn evil.
: : Chris
: Funny you should mention that, Chris...I was just trying to remember the same thing earlier. I think the closest I've seen him come to playing a bad guy was in The Bounty, but even then, it wasn't that he was truly evil...just that he was a product of his time, and didn't mind punishing the heck out of the men. He had a conscience, though, and tried to stick to the letter of the law. So, it sure sounds like this is a first. Ought to be quite interesting. Maybe he'll do evil so well, we'll never be able to look at him in quite the same way again...??
MMMMarcia, great minds do think alike! I've been wondering the same thing too. Have been scanning some DDL sites and movie sites learning a bit about this movie, and this Bill the Butcher cat sounds like a truly scary individual. I'm also a little scared to see what he's going to look like, because apparently in the original book Bill the B. had a false eye that had the American Eagle printed on it. Dear God, can you imagine that???? I've seen two pics from tabloids of DDL with a handlebar moustache, which is equally scary. So could it be that he's going to be both evil AND horrible to look at? And knowing Mr. Method's rigorous preps for roles, how is he going to be prepare to be a cold-blooded killer? Maybe I don't want to know...
